    Remember when we got news about James Avery voicing Silverbolt? Yeh we havent seen him at all, no toys or images, no info on the character, I'm beginning to think he's not in the movie

    this has been discussed hundred of times before. Probaly not. It was a stage name most likely. Like grimlock was used before as a stage name but he wasnt in the movie.

    ^^^ Either that, or it's Sentinel's working name.

    I think it was misinformation and it was hiding sentinel prime.

    Chances are this was a preliminary name for Sentinel Prime.

    Maybe it's Prime's jetpack. Huh. Imagen that. A talking backpack. How ridicolous. That's NEVER been done before. Transformers can be the first... Oh, wait.

    Agreed, but I'd still like to have Silverbolt in the movie.

    Yeah, I'm thinking this is the case. The voicebox on SP sounds not unlike Avery, as well.

    i think silverbolt was originally in the script but was removed or changed to have sentinel prime instead. sentinel prime will probably be voiced by the guy was subpost to voice silverbolt (cant remember his name right now)

    Or it could be that, like normal, he's an aerial unit so he doesn't have an on-set vehicle mode. Hasn't there been hints that the Space Shuttle's a transformer? As for no toys or images, well, we haven't seen much in the way of the Ferrari or the Mercedes in those departments either. I'm just saying that it's just too early that we should just write it off as Sentinel's working name (Silverbolt's kind of a color-specific name, and doesn't exactly strike me as something that would be used in reference on set to a red fire truck)

    I think you are using the term "stage name" incorrectly for this context. And when was Grimlock used before and in what movie?

    I think Grimlock was one of the many working names for Blackout, at least that's what the TFWiki says.

    At this point (4 months to release) it's not too early for anything anymore. I agree that there is a chance that Silverbolt could be in the movie; he could have a CGI alt mode. James Avery could still be Sentiel Prime's actor because we all know how accurate voice clips are right?

    It could just be misinformation about Silverbolt, and as others have said James Avery could be voicing SP. Seems the most likely right now, there's no evidence to suggest Silverbolt is in the film. Perhaps he has since been written out of the film, like Arcee in TF1.

    James Avery voicing Sentinel Prime is not true, because we know that Leonard Nimoy is gonna voice him, I suspect this Silverbolt thing is being kept more secret than the Superfund Armored Truck Decepticon
